Movie: "My Sister's Keeper"
When: Opening Friday at local theaters
Cast: Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin, Alec Baldwin, Jason Patric, Joan Cusack
Director: Nick Cassavetes
The story: After years of keeping her leukemia-patient sister alive, an 11-year-old decides to seek medical emancipation -- and leave her critically ill sister's future to fate.
The buzz: The filmmaking team that brought you the 2004 hit "The Notebook," writer-director Nick Cassavetes and co-writer Jeremy Leven, reunites for an adaptation of Jodi Picoult's best-seller. And though several of Picoult's books have been transformed into made-for-TV movies, this is the first big-screen feature based on her work.
